Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Value 430 from Nexus is an entry-level power supply that the manufacturer claims to be one of the quietest power supplies available today. The manufacturer also promises efficiency above 80%, even though this unit doesn’t have the 80 Plus certification. Let’s see if the Nexus Value 430 is a good buy.

The reviewed power supply is manufactured by ATNG.

The Nexus Value 430 is only 4.9” (125 mm) deep, using a 120 mm sleeve bearing fan on its bottom (Muhua Industrial MH1225L12S).

The reviewed power supply doesn’t have a modular cabling system. All cables are protected with nylon sleeves that come from inside the unit. This power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 22” (56 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 19.7” (50 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with one six-pin connector for video cards, 22” (56 cm) long
  • One cable with one six/eight-pin connector for video cards, 22” (56 cm) long
  • Two cables, each with two SATA power connectors, 24.4” (62 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors, 16.9” (43 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 16.9” (43 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors

All wires are 18 AWG, which is the minimum recommended gauge. This power supply comes with two cables for video cards, which are not commonly found on 430 W power supplies.
